A Battle Against the Odds

Competing on foreign soil always presents unique challenges. The Japanese riders had the home court advantage, and our athletes faced tough competition on the tight, single-track courses. However, the determination and skill of James Carl Dela Cruz and John Andre Aguja shone through, earning them well-deserved spots on the podium.

A Testament to the Go for Gold Program

These victories are not just personal achievements for James and John; they also reflect the success of the Go for Gold program. This initiative aims to support and develop young Filipino athletes, providing them with the resources and opportunities to excel on the international stage. The bronze medals won at Yawatahama serve as a testament to the effectiveness of this program.

Inspiring the Next Generation

The success of our athletes is more than just a celebration of their hard work and dedication. It serves as an inspiration for the youth of the Philippines, showing them that with determination and support, they too can achieve great things. Additionally, these results highlight the importance of continued investment and support from stakeholders to further elevate our country's presence in the world of mountain biking.

As we celebrate these victories, we look forward to more successes in the future. "Basta Pilipino Ginto" – as long as we continue to strive for gold, there is no limit to what we can achieve.
